A colorful 1891 home with a storybook feel is on the market in San Antonio's Lavaca area

A late-1800s Lavaca home went on the market a month ago, and its colorful and ornate exterior give off serious storybook vibes.

The property listing for the three-bedroom, two-bath home says it was built in 1891 by its original owner, a master carpenter and joiner, which certainly explains the elegant architectural details on the facade. From the vibrancy of the paint job, however, we'd wager that doesn't date back to the original owner.

According to the listing, the 1,600-square-foot interior features refinished flooring and antique light fixtures, but it's been updated with new plumbing, air conditioning ducts and a chef's kitchen.

The listing for the $729,000 home shows it's now under contract.

This home is listed by Carol Case with Kuper Sotheby's International Realty.
